December 2015 Theme – Living A Life Of Favour
Favour can be experienced as a one off; intermittently or continuously. So that it is possible for one to live a life of perpetual favour. Moses is one of the people in the bible that lived a life of perpetual favour from his birth to his death. At the time Moses as born, that was when the then Pharaoh made a decree to kill all male Jewish children in order to curb their strength. Moses however was preserved by Divine favour. God helped his mother to hide him for the first three months; made the basket that his mother put him on River Nile bank to stay afloat; compelled Pharaoh’s daughter to go to Nile while the basket was in sight; arranged how Moses was to be kept alive and catered for by his own mother and he was adopted as a Prince of Egypt!
It was favour that spared Moses’ head when he was showing compassion to the Hebrews he was supposed to be cruel to. The same favour made him to escape from Egypt before his murderous act was known to the king. Favour also connected him to the Priest of Midian who became his father in-law and whom he lived with for forty years.
Favour chose Moses as the deliverer of the Israelites from exile when there were more eloquent and valiant persons in Goshen. Favour distinguished him as he led the people through the desert for forty years: seeing God physically; doing great wonders and jealously defended by God. The same favour made him to enter the Heavenly Promised Land even when he didn’t qualify to enter the Earthly Promised Land. What a life of favour! Everywhere Moses turned to, favour was waiting for him.
In this month of December and beyond, God shall by His grace progress many of us unto a life of perpetual favours. Wherever negative situation abides, we shall be favoured and wherever positive situation prevails, we shall be greatly favoured. Every step we take, shall be steps of favour. God will favour us. Mankind will favour us. Even hosts of heaven, including cosmic elements will compete to favour us in Jesus name.
